How Old Songs Live a Second Life on TikTok

Fleetwood Mac, Nelly Furtado, and more are making new waves thanks to the video app.

The relentless doom of the Internet briefly subsided last month thanks to one dude who likes longboarding, cranberry juice, and Fleetwood Mac.

One of the lesser crises that a lot of young people are dealing with is the challenge of moving back in with their parents. For the first time in modern history, more than half of American adults age 18-29 are living with their parents.

As frustrating as it can be to deal with all your parents' quirks and rules like you're a teenager again, when the alternative is paying insane rent to be locked down in a tiny box of an apartment... maybe it's not such a bad deal. But of course, not every young person is faced with that dilemma.
